Too Many Men Stranded, As Red Sox Sink Royals

That was lame.

We can talk about all the wasted scoring chances or the absolutely perfect moment of Treyball, when St. Willie pinch-hit for Alex Gordon late in the game, if you want. For me however, the story from this game was a decent start by Luke Hochevar that suddenly went very wrong.

Here's the thing, a pitcher that is good sometimes and bad sometimes, he isn't an enigma. No, he's just a bad pitcher. Maybe he's good enough to stay in the rotation, unlike guys who are just always bad, but still, he's a bad pitcher. Hochevar was born in 1983, so he's not incredibly young. He's actually older than Greinke, believe it or not. Maybe this is what he is.
